New gardener here, well I had one when I was really young but I don't recall anything about it.
Well today I was runnin' the disc over some ground where some straw bales burned, and then ran it into the old cattle lot that had burned off some too, when a friend came to talk to me, said I should grow a garden there.
Got me thinking, I should, it's perfect ground for it, hasn't had cattle in it for like 5 years now, burned off, where I want the garden at is at the base of a hill so it will get plenty of water when it rains, will get plenty of sun during the day, and there is a shelter belt to the west so it will get shade at the hottest point in the day.
So here is what I'm thinking, I'm thinking large scale on this, because I can have the local cafe sell the produce for me, so I want to plant a lot, and a large variety.
Here's the list:
Anything else you suggest? Cantaloupe, I don't know if I can grow that around here. Sweet corn, I may grow some of that, but that would just be for me, a lot of farmers around here plant large quantities of sweet corn and give it away, so I couldn't sell that.
Now I want to get started planting this week, I ran the disc over it to break it up, gonna run a digger through it tomorrow.
Now I got plenty of places in the lot that will get more shade than others, what should I be planting there and what should I be planting in more sunlight?
Here are some photos of the plot:
